Research on Child Neglect

Funding Contact(s): Deborah Hirtz, M.D.
Funding Categories: Clinical Research

Brief Description:

The above sponsoring Institutes invite applications in response to this Program Announcement (PA) that will enhance our understanding of the etiology, extent, services, treatment, management, and prevention of child neglect. This PA is a follow-up to a 1999 Request for Applications designed to stimulate the development of programs of child neglect research at institutions that currently have strong research programs in related areas, and to bring the expertise of researchers from the child health, education, and juvenile justice fields into the child neglect research field. The PA is intended to foster ongoing programs of research on child neglect throughout NIH, the DOJ Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention, the Children's Bureau, and the ED Office of Special Education Programs, in order to encourage the continuation of the kind of research stimulated by the 1999 RFA. (The Office of Child Abuse and Neglect, in the Children's Bureau, will participate pending the reauthorization of the Child Abuse Prevention and Treatment Act and the availability of funds.)
